I could have immediately picked up a THOUSAND things by my brain took over and told me, in no uncertain terms, to “shop smart”.
I hate when it does that.
So what did I find? THIS.
A fantastic wine barrel stave reclaimed and repurposed into a tea light holder. As you can see it now sits squarely on my mantle and I cannot wait to see it all lit amongst some fall décor in a few months. I understand the barrel came from owners that were all about the organic and green approach to living, so I find it an interesting back story for my new piece.
I also found these.
I seem to be having a love affair lately with all things skeleton keys. Maybe it’s the mystery of what a key unlocks? These lay casually on a side table in my living room and I am trying gently to remind my 3-year old they are lovely but NOT TOYS. So far it’s working.
Think good thoughts.
I’m curious, are you a flea market finder? What’s the best treasure you’ve found in your scavenger hunt?
